    No, what you are attempting here is to change the subject....Shift the blame to insurance companies, and pretend that this law hasn't made things worse....Not going to play that game with you Joe, stick to the topic.

And why not? They have no responsibility to pay for it.

    This of course cannot continue indefinitely. Our ever-growing debt will see to that. But what happens when the countries that lend us 46 cents of every dollar we spend simply...stop? That is going to be horrifying for everyone, and I don't care where you are on the monetary scale. If someone is begging for food to feed their children, will you be able to ignore them if you could help? If so, how long could you continue to do so? Sad...

    Hi polgara, I couldn't agree more with what you say here....it really is so simple.

GMAFB!

    No, you don't just don't want any challenge to your false narrative. You believe things that are factually untrue. You can believe silly if you want to, but the facts, well, they are the facts. Sorry.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Now, his defenders are reduced to:

    'Well, he is no worse then other politicians'.


    When will people learn that one should NEVER trust ANY politician - no matter how desperately they want to?
    I'm not necessarily defending anyone. I'm just wondering why anyone would actually expect anything different.

    Odd response, because I didn't say differently....Kind of like me saying 'I like apples', and you responding with, 'some cars are red'...

    There is no constitutional provision for a recall election.

    Well, whenever they say anything about a GOP pol, that's what we hear. Usually they're accused of being partisan the other way...

    I was speaking of anyone who trusts politician's.

    I just assumed you were one of them...my mistake.

    But you know what I said is true. Fess up.
    It is a fact that insurance companies cancelled policies on people that were carrying them.

    Just as it is a fact that ObamaCare has caused that number to go up between 100% to 1000% in less than a single year.

    I can't believe that the insurance industry would have cancelled 5M policies in a single year. Way too much a hit on revenue for them. Come on!
